PATIALA: Assam's sprint prodigy Hima Das won the women's 200m race while Odisha'sDutee Chand dominated 100m in the second leg of the Indian Grand Prix meet at Patiala's National Institute of Sports here on Thursday.

Hima's winning time of 23.31 seconds in her first race after a long layoff due to back injury could be seen as good performance, but it fell short of Tokyo Olympic qualification time of 22.80 seconds.

Despite being an Olympic qualifier competition, there were only two runners in the 200m competition here on Thursday, with Delhi's SimrandeepKaur taking second spot at 24.91 seconds in the one-day competition.

The women's 100m race went on expected lines with Odisha's international sprinter Dutee winning comfortably. She clocked 11.44 seconds. She had clocked 11.51 seconds in the first leg on February 18.

Karnataka's Daneshwari A was second at 11.89 seconds, while Maharashtra's Diandra Dudley Valladares clocked 11.92 seconds for third place. IANS
